Stirling Castle - Historic Scotland

Stirling Castle
Food icon Shop icon Visual disability facilities icon Wheelchair access icon

Without doubt one of the grandest of all Scottish castles, both in its situation on a commanding rock outcrop and in its architecture. The Great Hall and the Gatehouse of James IV, the marvellous Palace of James V, the Chapel Royal of James VI and the artillery fortifications of the 16th to 18th centuries are all of outstanding interest. The views from the castle rock are spectacular. The Great Hall has recently been restored to how it would have looked around 1500. Displays on castle’s history, medieval kitchen and attractive café.
